Eminem Opens Up About Rihanna And ‘The Monster Tour’



In an interview on Sirius XM’s Shade 45 station, Eminem opened up about his experiences on The Monster Tour with Rihanna, which concluded in his hometown of Detroit on Aug. 23. While backstage at MetLife stadium in New Jersey before his show there in mid-August, Eminem talked to host Reef the Streets about working with Rihanna, how the tour came together, and how it compares to his previous tours.

“As far as me and Rih working together, I think it’s great,” Eminem said of working with Rihanna. “I think that it’s interesting how our music does intertwine and certain themes and things seem to work together really well. The crowds have been incredible, the people have been amazing, it’s been fun.”

The “Rap God” goes on to clarify how truly fun the tour has been by comparing it to negative tour experiences he’s had in the past. “I can honestly say that because I used to not have fun,” he says, “There was one point in time where [doing shows] was all bad.”

When asked about how he goes about choosing setlists for his shows, Em replies, “Selfishness. Whatever I feel like doing is whatever people gotta f*****g deal with…We don’t ever wanna get stale, just keep doing the same s**t.”

    Rihanna will always be one of those Rare Pop Stars, who came to the Music and Entertainment World , to try and put her Mark on Music. She’s Visually, very Unique and has a Magnetic air around her. Her beautiful Music has Utterly been heard all over the World. Her Unique Vocals bids well for the Up Town Crowd, as well as the hole in the walls and hood crowd. If you don’t. Like her then love the one you want to. She’s not forcing you to like her, its left up to each of us individually.Trying to side track her and always bashing her will not affect her will to go the distance.

    To Me….People do need to get over themselves. She is not letting the things people say stop her from her well defined work efforts. Actually the talk help to keep her grounded and sane even better.
